Where to book your Torrevieja rental
Torrevieja is a coastal city in the Valencian Community of Spain. Located on the shores of the Mediterranean sea, it is next to two salt lagoons with mountainous landscapes and high ecological value in terms of its flora. The origin of its name comes from ‘tower’ (torre) and ‘lookout’ in reference to the observation towers against the attack of the pirates of the Levantine coast. The city has its own hamlet, Torrelamata (also known as La Mata) which is located in the northern part of the city, on the way to Guardamar del Segura. This Costa Blancan city attracts mainly tourists to its shores who want to enjoy its beaches, so we would recommend choosing one of the urbanisations that face the sea for your holiday apartment .
